#1 iTHENA Q1 2021: Planned hardware upgrade of the iThena BOINC platform

Post by Newshound » Mon Jan 11, 2021 12:08 pm

A major hardware upgrade of the BOINC server is planned for Q1 2021.

Currently, the BOINC platform shares hardware resources within the framework of virtualization.

I plan to separate the BOINC platform into dedicated hardware resources (dedicated server).

This server will probably run on 15k SAS drives (mirroring) with double socket Intel Xeon CPU.

If somebody has unnecessary SAS hard drives (15k or even 10k) or some RAM (DDR3 ECC/non-ECC), these are components that can be very useful in hardware system;)

In case someone would like to donate this type of hardware to the project or have other interesting components (also network equipment) can contact me by email: lswierczewski@cybercomplex.net

In Q1 2021, we also plan to make a significant upgrade of the Internet access link.

The exact timing of the changes is not yet known.
